MILK OF HUMAN KINDNESS |
FLOWS IN HUMAN BREAST
♦----------------- - --------------------- «
The milk of human kindness con­
tinues to flow in the human breast.
Several weeks ago O. R. Cochran
had a notice inserted in a radio
magazine stating that because of
infirmities which prevented his do­
ing any great amount of work he
would appreciate gifts of spare
parts of radio outfits. Within a
short time he received a complete
new ouftit from the Ferrell Manu­
facturing company, makers of radio
outfits. One of the officers of the
company had seen the notice and
had acted immediately. Mr. Cochran
has to use a battery, because of not
having electric power service in his i
home, and business men of the city ’
bought him one. The new outfit is t
a six-tube one. He already had I
two-tube and three-tube outfits and I
wishes to dispose of one of them.
Mr. Cochran states that he gets i
more pleasure out of tinkering with i
outfits than he does from the actual I
operatiou and in that way much of
his spare time is consumed.

HENRY BENNETT DOESN’T
LIKE TOO AFFECTIONATE

CABLE
♦----------------------------------------♦
Henry Bennett, employe at the
Woodson garage, is not easily
shockbd, but something happened a
few days ago that completely upset
him aud he plainly showed his agi­
tation. He was sending some tools
from the lower floor to the upper
floor of the garage by the elevator.
The steel cable with which the ele
vator is operated hud become short-
circuited with tho electric motor
and when Mr. Beunett took hold of
it, it immediately became affec­
tionate towards him and insisted
upon hanging onto him. Ho had to
put up quite a struggle to loosen tho
embrace.
Mr. Bennett stakes his reputation
as a punster upon tho statement
that an affectionate short-circuited
cable can give pointers to a short-
skirted flapper—his kuowledgo of
tho latter being hearsay und obser­
vation only.

MUOER CASE CONTINUES
The Wife Who Lived Here Was Not
Mother of Alton, the Youth­
ful Murderer.
The continued startling develop­
ments in the Covell murder case at
Bandon are of interest to Cottage
Grove people because of the faet
that a part of the Covell family
were residents here ten years ago.
Dr. Covell was a chiropractic
practitioner here. Dr. Covell’s wife
of that time, who was his assistant
in his practice, died after the fam­
ily removed to Bandon and the wife
who was murdered by Dr. Covell’s
son Alton was not known here. Al­
ton is a son by a marriage even
preceding that with the wife who
resided here. Alton, so far as re­
membered, did not at nny time live
with his father here, he and his
sister Lucille being cared for by
Dr. Covell’s people, who lived else­
where. A son of Mrs. Covoll by a
previous marriage was with the
Covells when they lived hero and
it is thought that Lucille was a
resident hero for u short time.
The most recent developments in
the ease are that both Alton, wlio
has confessed to murdering his step­
mother by smothering her with
ammonia fumes, aud the crippled,
bed-ridden undo, who incited the
boy to the crime, will stand trial
separately. It has developed that
tho boy would havo been in the
stato school for tho feebleminded
except for the crowdod condition of
the school. Tho murdex of Mrs.
Covell was planned a month ahead
and Mrs. Covell had herself pre­
dicted that October 3, according to
her horoscope, was the date for her
death.
It has developed that tho uncle,
Arthur Covell, instigator of tho
crime, was a most kiuuly man until
sustaining injuries when crushed
under jt truck three years ago.
A largo numbor of people of Ban
don and vicinity were to havo boon
murdered, according to diary notes
of Arthur Covell, the contents of
which have been divulged by tho
authorities. It is thought that it is
possible that horoscope's prepared by
the crippled astrologist may have
figured in tho murder a year ago
of Desmond Taylor at Hollywood,
which has never been cleared up.
CHARLES GUGGISBERG IS
RECOVERING CONSCIOUSNESS
Charles Guggisbcrg, 13-year-old
son of Mr. und Mrs. Fred Guggis-
berg, who sustained severe injuries
when knocked from a load of hay
which ho was assisting to unload,
and who remained in an unconscious
condition for sovcrnl days, has re­
gained consciousness so far as to
recognize those about him and tho
attending physician believes there is
no doubt of his complete ultimate
recovery. Ho stated that there havo
been cases in which unconsciousness
continued over a much longer per­
iod and yet recovery was complete.
While young Guggisberg was
working on top of the load of hay,
the horses became startled by a bale
falling forward onto thorn. They
jumped forward und the boy’s head
came iu contact with tho track upon
whieh tho barn door operated. Ho
was struck on the side of the head,
the blow barely missing tho tomplo.
If your business isu’t better this
year, the reason probably is that
you haven’t done a sufficient
amount of judicious advertising in
The Sentinel.
WHAT NEW YORK LEARNED
Whatever has been said for or
against newspaper advertising,
Now York learned, during the
time tho newspapers could give
no advertising on account of the
pressmen’s strike, exactly what
it means to be left without news-
paper advertising of tho
sales. Evon Wall street,
takes but a comparatively small
corner of the Now York nows
paper space, learned that its cue
turners depend upon the news
paper announcements of financial
offerings, and several large mon­
ey offerings were postponed un
til newspaper advertising could
be had.
Stores depending on special
sales wore most seriously af­
fected. In lieu of newspaper ads
these stores sent out printed cir­
culars, but theso were not nearly
so effective as tho ads, the man­
agers admitted.
In the words of Hearn W. 'I
Street, one of the executives of
Blair 4 company, a lending bank
ing house:
“Investment bankers were not
certain until the pressmen '» strike
begnn that newspaper advertising
played a big part in their bind
ness. We know now what in­
valuable service the newspapers
render us. It. is next to impos-
«ible to put over a big bond issue
without advertising. Our elients
expect advertising and will not
bother to read circulars.’’
The experience of New York
in her “newsloss’’ days should
be of infinite value to
_ anyone
,___
who doubts tho effectiveness of
newspaper advertising.
